Big Break has one of the highest fixed jackpots of any non-progressive slot game. Playing the basic game, you can win as much as $75,000 on a single spin. Additionally, the bonus game and free-spin game give you opportunities to win even more. There are five reels and 15 paylines, which is relatively standard for this type of game. Having fewer paylines means that you can use higher coin amounts without spreading yourself too thin to activate all of them.
The theme itself looks like some kind of primal parody of a fruit machine. Some of the symbols are of various primates and the others are of different fruits. The color scheme is mostly comprised of light tans and pastels, with a dark blue background for the symbols. The gameplay is nice, but it is the massive jackpot that sets Big Break above its peers.
The minimum bet is $0.15, which isn’t high, though it is slightly higher than the minimum that some other games have. The maximum amount for a coin is set at $1.50, making the overall maximum bet $75. The jackpot is 1,000 multiplied by whatever your trigger bet is, so you can figure that into your bankroll budgeting when you decide what limits you would like to play at.
As a general rule, it is better to bet smaller amounts on all of the paylines than to bet a lot on one coin since the coins activate separate paylines. The more paylines you have activated, the greater your chances of winning and activating the bonus games.
Big Break has both a free-spin game and a passive bonus feature. The bonus feature pops up randomly and multiplies whatever you win by 50. The free-spin game operates much like those featured in other games, with activation requiring three or more scatter symbols. It is important to note that Big Break actually has two multiplier symbols, meaning that you can significantly ramp up your winning combinations. This is a great choice for players who like five-reel, multi-payline games but dislike long intermissions for bonus games that detract from the overall playing experience.
